Description

Deluxe boxed gift set of pocket edition hardbacks featuring J.R.R. Tolkien’s most popular works, which together tell the tale of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins and of the War of the Ring.

When they were first published, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings became instant classics. Treasured by readers young and old, these works of sweeping fantasy, steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness have sold more than 150 million copies around the world.

This new boxed set, published to mark the 80th anniversary of the publication of The Hobbit, offers readers a new opportunity to discover Tolkien’s remarkable world of Middle-earth and to follow the complete story of Bilbo Baggins and the Hobbits’ part in the epic quest for the Ring – beginning with Bilbo’s fateful visit from Gandalf and culminating in the dramatic climax between Frodo and Gollum atop Mount Doom and Bilbo’s departure to the Grey Havens.

These books were a bit smaller than I had imagined they would be when coming in but I just began to think of them as hobbit sized and it grew on me. The books are simple in design and when done with will look good on the shelf with or without the holding case. After reading The Hobbit(green book), I noticed a good amount of wear on the top and bottom of the book as you can see in the pictures. Take it from me, putting these in a backpack for a week or so probably isn’t a good idea... Strong 4 star for durability and design. What’s on the inside of these books is an incredible story my family loves.

First, the obvious. They are much smaller than one might anticipate. They are not so small as to be absurd (as I''ve seen many people complain about the recent vinyl bound pocket editions); and the typeset and margins have been adjusted so that the words are not so small as to be difficult to read. But nonetheless they will be dwarfed (hobbited?) by the other books on your shelf. I''ve included a picture of the single volume LOTR that I was replacing for a sense of scale.
Secondly, the finish seems lacking for a $45 set. The dust jackets are not the typical laminated glossy material you find, they are matte paper (and not heavyweight paper at that),so the colors are rather duller than one would expect. They will absorb every bit of skin oil your hands have to give, and any dirt or smudges will not be able to be cleaned off. If kept on while reading, I doubt they would last more than one pass. To box in general is rather nice, though I thought the print and Smaug design would be inlaid or embossed, but it is neither (and looks a bit cartoonish up close).
Finally, the slip case came damaged (as pictured). Of course this is possibly to no fault of the seller or the product design and could have occurred during shipping.
I really do like that the cover design called back to the original releases and artwork, and the slip case seems to be well constructed in spite of mine being damaged; the price itself does seem to have been reduced as the original price printed on the bottom was 50 pounds ($65 USD). Whether that is getting a good deal or a sign of lacking sales is up for interpretation.
All in all I was hoping fora good bit more, but I bought them to read, and I believe they will do just fine at that.

My wife asked for a set that included the Trilogy and The Hobbit and this fit the bill. The only slight complaint I have is these books are really small. The print inside of them isn''t too small, though. It''s just kind of a compact set, which might be just what some folks want. At any rate, the quality of the set is very good and I would buy it again.

I finally decided to read Tolkien''s Lord of the Rings and I wanted a hardback set that included The Hobbit. This set seemed to fit the bill. I was surprised to find that the books in the set were smaller than I was expecting (my fault for not thoroughly checking the dimensions before ordering). However, the quality of the books and page paper is good and I have found them very readable with a good source of lighting. The printing within the map inside the covers is so tiny I have given up trying to read it with a magnifying glass and instead use an online map on my laptop to trace the various character journeys within the stories; and believe me you will want to have that map of Middle Earth to follow along with the series. I read the books after taking off the cover slipcases, since they are made out of a thin paper and I want to keep them pristine. The box keeps all the books together nicely and the set fits well on a bookcase, but like Hobbits, the set may be dwarfed by other books.

The product was gorgeous and just what I needed. I ordered them as a gift, so I became panicked when they were almost a month overdue, good thing I ordered them so early. The tracking number was spotty at best, so I got to where I wasn''t sure if I would even get them; forget about being on time for the birthday.
I tried contacting the seller, but after 3 days of BAD communication, I gave up.

For a small-handed, good-eyed man, that enjoys taking books with him on adventures to the back-garden, local woods, or on excursions outside the M25, these pocket-books are perfect. Hard-back books are my preference, due to their ability to act as armour against stray goblin-fired arrows. The hard-case additionally performs as a display, & protector to their small & perfect form. The dust-jackets are, both practical, & horrid, thankfully they are 100% recyclable, which pleases the ents greatly. Beneath the dust-jackets are four simple, elegant, & delightful-to-hold volumes, one green as Bilbo’s door, & three grey as Gandalfs hat. Sadly they do not have their own book-marks, & lack metal corner protectors, but besides that, they are splendid. In the hand they are light enough to hold for extended reading, which is optimal for such enthralling tales.

These are disappointing... These books are best described, as some have said, as ''tiny''. It''s probably easier to read on my phone than on these tiny rice-paper books. These books are slightly larger than my iPhone and smaller than my kindle (paperwhite 2018 - which is itself NOT huge). They might fit the hands of a small child - but LOTR isn''t really for pre-school. There have obviously many print versions of LOTR - the initial versions being MUCH larger. This review is for these physical books and the unhelpful description... NOT the Lord of the Rings stories themselves - which are 5 star. And before someone comments comments about my review - YES, yes, you can mark a book down because the item itself is substandard. Also arrived damaged - which may have happened in the quantum realm that the book was printed in.

I''ve wanted a set of these books for a while but a lot of them are £60 ish which is too much for me to spend on books cause I''m a student and I have no money. I was overjoyed when I found this cheaper set. At first I didn''t realise it was a pocket version so I was worried that they would be uncomfortably small. However I realised that what I don''t like about the hard back books that I have is their massive size. I visited my local book shop and found the Hobbit that''s in this set and found it to be a great size and the text isn''t that small. I love the simple design of the dust covers and the box. The one problem I found was that the dust covers had a small bit of damage on the edge of them. This doesn''t bother me books get damaged over time anyway.

Being a Tolkien fanatic and collector I naturally have more than one copy of The Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. This is in fact my 9th copy of the LOTR, my oldest being a latter impression of the first edition. So why did I have to buy this set? Primarily because I find pocket editions of loved books irresistible. Many of you will have seen the lovely pocket hardbacks that OUP used to publish in the World’s Classics series. These are a similar concept but slightly larger. There is something deeply attractive in the concept of being able to slip a favourite book in one’s pocket and to be able to take it on a journey. The text is necessarily small in this edition but not so small that reading is a strain. They have the original first edition dust jackets which is a nice touch. They books are well made and, impressively, the bindings are sewn. The slip case is strong and well designed. Whilst I would not recommend this as an only copy of the LOTR this is undoubtedly a lovely edition and great quality.

I scan read and find it hard with the text line spacing being so close to each other. But it'' worth it to keep the small portable form factor. GREAT VALUE I love these so much am now going to order the only other set i can find :-( i WISH Game Of Thrones did a set like this and lots of others.
